In celebration of Robert Mondavi’s legacy to the wine industry, members of the trade will take part in a worldwide online toast this Friday, June 17.
The toast will mark the anniversary of Mondavi’s 98th birthday and will be broadcast live from the winery in Oakville, California at 2pm local time, or 10pm in the UK.
Mondavi’s wife Margrit and winemaker Genevieve Janssens will host the celebration.
Between now and June 17, with every new “like” on the Facebook pagewww.facebook.com/robertmondavi, Robert Mondavi wines will donate $1 to Days of Taste, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating children about the food we eat.
Days of Taste is the community action group of the American Institute of Wine & Food, which was founded by Julia Child and Robert Mondavi.
